FBN has made significant investments (property, plant and equipment) on account, thereby getting into financial trouble by owing their creditors quite a bit of money. FBN made too many investments (on account) and their cost of services increased faster than their sales. Yet another indicator of financial woes is the Profitability Analysis.

There are many programs that Delta has built after passing through the cost-cutting reformation in 1997 for getting back its capabilities on customer relationships like rewards and recognition program above and beyond and more.
